Main Modifications Policy YV2: North East Yeovil Sustainable Urban Extension (no name)

  • Comment ID: 72
Excessive encroachment into the fragile strip of open countryside between Yeovil on the one hand and Over Compton, Trent and Up Mudford on the other, to which must be added the adverse visual impact on these villages of the 'pig ugly' - quote, last Housing Minster, N Boles - sprawl along Lyde Road - NPPF 126 & 129. The project also totally conflicts with the Mudford Neighbourhood Plan which has almost complete community support, thus contravening Government Policy on Localism. The area designa

OBJECT The following summarises my objection to the proposed Main Modification 9 to the Proposed Local Plan.   Policy YV2 - Main modification 9   Notwithstanding I maintain my objections to YV2 and say that all reference to both SUEs should rightly be deleted, I object to the inconsistency of approach now proposed for the two SUEs. The case for strategic mitigation of landscape impact is equally valid for the proposed South SUE as for the North East SUE. The proposed development at Keyford

I wish to OBJECT to 2 specific Main Modifications in Policy YV2 MM9 & MM10 . N Modification (MM9) on Landscape Mitigation measures for the NE Urban Extension to reduce the visual impact of the development. Is the Planning Inspector's recommendation to screen the NE option sound? The ESSENCE of the Main Modification seems to be that the Planning Inspector has directed that they must provide LANDSCAPE MITIGATION MEASURES to the NE site to protect things to the NW of that site, but he has NOT re

The comments made at the hearing regarding views of the North East Yeovil SUE were related to short distance views from properties in the area of Trent and Over Compton (Dorset). The Planning Inspector sought changes to the Local Plan to detail mitigation measures in the form of landscaping. Both the North Eastern (Upper Mudford) and Southern (Keyford) landscapes are highly valued and sensitive to skyline development as detailed in the PLS addendum. Developments that could be obtrusive due to t

Response Type: OBJECT   I maintain my objection to the proposed development of 800 dwellings at the South Yeovil Urban Extension within the parish of East Coker, entirely on Grade 1 agricultural land.   Notwithstanding my fundamental objection above, I object to the proposed MM 9 because it takes no account of the need for structural landscaping to mitigate the visual impact of the proposed South Yeovil Urban Extension on the surrounding area.   Proposed development along the north east ed

To meet our obligations under the Duty to co-operate I can confirm that the County Council has considered the proposed modifications.  Dorset County Council welcomes the proposed Modification (MM9) to provide greater certainty regarding mitigation of the landscape impact stemming from the North East Yeovil Sustainable Urban Extension.  This will help to address the comments we made in January 2014 in respect of the proposed development of this area. Dorset County Council does not wish to comme

POLICY YV2: NORTH EAST YEOVIL SUSTAINABLE URBAN EXTENSION   In its representations to the Submission version of the Local Plan (August 2012), the Examination (spring/summer 2013) and Proposed Main Modifications (PMM) consultation (January 2014), Abbey Manor Group ('AMG') supported the designation of Yeovil as the focus for future development as the main town in the District. This remains the case. AMG similarly made representations on how future development at Yeovil could best be accommodate

WE OBJECT to the fact that there are no detailed measures included to reduce the visual impact of the proposed South Urban extension on the surrounding areas, and policy YV2 should be modified accordingly.

Landscape Mitigation Measures to the North East Urban Extension have been included in order to reduce the visual impact of the development when viewed from the West and North West of the A359. I maintain that similar measures are necessary to reduce the visual intrusion of the proposed South Urban Extension (KEYFORD) when viewed from the South and South-West, particularly when approaching Yeovil from Dorset on the A37. Wording needs to be included to modify POLICY YV2 accordingly and I object to
